Russia 2018: Brazil Poster Boy Neymar Junior Set To Miss Friday’s Clash With Costa Rica After Leaving Training In Tears

russia-2018-brazil-poster-boy-neymar-junior-set-to-miss-fridays-clash-with-costa-rica-after-leaving-training-in-tearsBrazil will have to negotiate their second group game of the ongoing FIFA World cup without star man Neymar Junior after the Paris Saint Germain forward limped off their training sessions just three days to the game.

The World most expensive player suffered a competition record 10 fouls in their opening game against Switzerland but seems to have aggravated the situation less than 72 hours to their second game of the competition.

The skilful forward was spotted shedding tears as he leaves their training sessions prematurely with Douglas Costa or Fred likely to replace him in the decisive game.

The five times world champions must beat Costa Rica or risk packing bag and baggage earlier than anticipated after a disappointing 1-1 drawn game against a Xerdan Shaqiri inspired Swiss side.

Coutinho unleashed his trademark pile drivers to open the scoring for the ‘pentacampenao’ in the group opener before a Swiss late surge pegged the scores at 1-1.
